Friday Ice Skating at Falmouth Family Ice: In the past, MWS has arranged ice time with Falmouth Family Ice for students who have noon release on Fridays. Falmouth Family Ice is now under new management and they are looking into whether or not they can offer this arrangement to us again this year. They will be following up with me this week. If you are potentially interested in ice skating on Friday afternoons, please email email@example.com asap so you can be counted and so you can be on the mailing list for updates. Also, since my daughter is now in 4th grade, I would love to find someone to take this over this year. Thank you, Pat Sanford. (12/13)

Alumni Parents Find Gnomes, Elves and Fairies in
Forest: Merriconeag alumni parents, Iwona Tarling and
Arabella Eldridge, walk their dogs daily at Twin Brook in Cumberland. Last
August after Hurricane Irene, they found that the forest floor had become a
haven for an unbelievable variety of mushrooms. Inspired, they hauled out their
Ostheimer collections of wooden toys from their days at Merriconeag and
photographed these “friends” in the natural world. The result is a collection of
whimsical cards that made them “laugh and wonder” and are sure to do the same
for you. Their new business is called Blue Moss Arts and from now until Winter
Break you can view and purchase a sampling of their Waldorf inspired cards in
the Early Childhood office. (12/06)
Wanted: $1 Eisenhower coins. Hi Everyone. We are looking for $1 Eisenhower coins. You remember, the big heavy ones from the 70s. If you have any just sitting around (in a sock drawer or jar maybe) and are willing to part with them (we will pay you for them of course), please let me know. Thanks so much!

Delicious Lamb for Sale: Whole or half lambs for sale, just in time for the holidays! This week, we’re sending off three lambs for butchering. They’ve been raised on our land in Pownal, on all organic pasture, hay and grain. They aren’t certified organic as we do on occasion use worming medication to maintain their good health. They’ll likely dress out at about 40 – 50#, and are $6.50/#, plus slaughter and cutting costs which works out to be roughly $65/animal. So a full lamb would run approximately $350, a half $175. Individual preferences regarding cutting instructions can be followed. If interested, please call Jo D. Saffeir at 688-4191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks! (12/06)
Class of 2000 Alumnus Seeks Farmland: Experienced farming couple seeks acreage in +/- 30-minute radius of Durham, ME. Looking to expand current organic winter greens enterprise into small-scale, diversified, year-round organic vegetables. Tillable acres sought for 2011/12 season are 1-2, though situations with additional tillable acres (up to +/- 20) are a plus. Situations that include additional acreage for pasture would be ideal for longer-term use (5+ years). Land which includes other non-tillable areas (e.g. woodland, orchard, perennials) will be considered. Infrastructure, equipment, and on-site housing in reasonable repair are all definite pluses. We are most interested in securing a long-term (5+ years) lease, but will consider other arrangements for the right situation. Please contact Kelsey Herrington and Dominic Pascarelli, MWS ’00 at email@example.com or 207.319.9102 for more detailed information.(12/06)
